Pirates catcher Chris Stewart needs knee surgery

The Pirates acquired Chris Stewart from the Yankees to serve as Russell Martin‘s backup, but now the 31-year-old catcher is likely headed for surgery after injuring his knee in a game last week. Stewart didn’t figure to play much for the Pirates considering he’s a career .214 hitter and Martin started 117 games last year. In his place 25-year-old former first-round draft pick...

Yankees Trade Catcher Chris Stewart to the Pittsburgh Pirates

Apparently the New York Yankees are counting on their new catcher to contribute a full season’s worth of work behind the plate. Even though Brian McCann (whom the Yankees just signed to a five year contract for $85 million) only played in 102 games last year for Atlanta, the Yankees shipped off their most played catcher of 2013 rather than keeping him as a backup. And so...

Yankees trade Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for another bucket of fried chicken

The Yankees today traded catcher Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for what is expected to be an obscure low-end prospect, meaning the Yankees are cornering the market on obscure former Pirate minor leaguers.  (See A.J.

Getaway Day Thoughts: Apparently, Chris Stewart's great play at Fenway didn't galvanize the team

I'm off on a National Lampoon Family Vacation, leaving the house keys to Mustang for a week. I might fire off a furious, blood-inked note from some wi-fi hobo jungle - Mt. Waldman is ready to pop - but probably, I'll self-medicate with my head in a bucket of ice-water.Getaway Day thoughts:1. Chris Stewart's catch/throw out - the greatest moment of 2013 - spared us from...

The quietly winning ways of the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have always won ballgames. But hardly ever in the manner they are now. In Seattle, catcher Chris Stewart emerged as the latest hero for the Yankees Since 2002, the aptly-named Bronx Bombers have finished in the top five among all major league teams in runs scored every year but one. The lone exception – 2008 – coincided with the only time in the past 18 years...

Stewart, Is It His Time?

  Chris Stewart went 2 for 4 in the Yankees’ win over the Detroit Tigers today, which begs the question, “should Stewart start seeing more playing time over the under achieving Russell Martin?”
